Felt tips

The background in this piece was first drawn with felt tips and then sprayed with water as described in Sherril Kahn's book 'Creating with Paint'. I added some foiling at one point. The stitching is sort of Kantha quilting. I framed it with frayed edges; I'm quite fond of it really, I suppose because it was just a bit of fun.
I have been getting ready for a craft show in our local village hall tomorrow. I am looking forward to it and hope that I have a few sales, but I am quite philosophical about that these days. I wonder if I will sell my little friend above.


  1. Let us know how the craft fair goes, I've heard a great deal about that one :)

  2. Well, it rained, there were a number of other events on the same day,plus a change of organizer. Good quality stalls, but hardly anyone came. That's it in a nutshell; the good news is that I came home to find my roast dinner being cooked, so not all bad!

  3. so lovely thanks for the tips

  5. Thanks for your comments about my Painter pictures. Have you had any chance to explore and play in Painter?

    This is a lovely piece! The dimensional quality is very pleasing.

  6. jackie,
    thanks for stopping by my blog. i really like this piece and i can see some connections with what i'm working on now. re: fixing the crayons i'm testing spray fixer, the one used in pastel drawing. spray lightly and from afar befrore you do any stitching. will have to keep investigating fixing methods.
    btw blogger was funky and i was never notified of your post.




Comments are always much appreciated. Thank you.
